Q: I just installed Kids Place and did not set up any PIN but its now asking a PIN to exit. I am stuck, please HELP?
A: If you did not set the PIN during the install, than the default PIN 4321 (as displayed in PIN prompt at the bottom) should work. Please try 4321 as PIN to exit Kids Place. You can use this PIN to go to kids place setting and change your pin. Its highly recommended to register your email so that you can retrieve it yourself in case you forget it.

Q: Why do I still see the default home screen when hitting the home button before it sends me back into Kids Place?
A: This occurs when you don’t have the “Lock home button” setting checked. The setting temporarily changes the default home of your Android device and is more secure than relying on special logic to push you back into Kids Place. It is recommended you check “Lock home button”.
Q: How can I access books from Kids Place on the Kindle Fire?
A: At the moment the Fire doesn’t offer a clean way of accessing your books from within Kids Place, however the following method allows you to read books using the Fire Launcher while Kids Place app protection is still enabled:
1) Add the Kindle app to Kids Place
2) Add the Launcher app to Kids Place
Use the Fire Launcher book area to choose which book to read. The launcher is required because it is presently the only app that has the ability to switch between the books – the Kindle app can only view a single book at a time.
Even though you now have given your child access to the Fire launcher, the good news is that your device will still be locked down for things other than books – they will still be prevented from doing things you don’t want them to be doing like purchasing videos, music or running apps that are not in Kids Place.
We are presently looking into ways to expose the books from within Kids Place itself and not have to resort to the Fire Launcher. We may have something in a few versions down the line.
Q: How can I rearrange the icons?
A: As of right now you can’t. A future version of Kids Place – Parental Control will have this capability however.
Q: How can I access books from Kids Place – Parental Control on the Nook?
A: As of right now you can’t. A future version of Kids Place will have this capability however.
Q: How can I uninstall Kids Place – Parental Control app from my Android device?

Q: Is Kids Place – Parental Control app available for iPhone and iPad?
A: Sorry, at this moment we do not have a version of Kids Place – Parental Control app for iPhone and iPad.
